Maria's project is titled "Characterising the immune response to Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in larval stages of the endangered Fleay's barred frog". The funding will assist her with processing and analysing histological samples to help improve our understanding of the role of tadpoles as reservoirs for chytridiomycosis.
